Unfair Costs?


Is a Christian college really too expensive for a family with an average income? Judy Moseman answers this question.

My mom and dad say there is no way we can possibly afford a Christian education. Is a Christian college really too expensive for a family with an average income? If so, it seems unfair and even unchristian that a Christian education is only for those who have a lot of money.

Actually, Christian colleges and universities tend to be more affordable than other private colleges. There are three reasons why this is generally true:

1) Many Christian schools receive charitable and denominational support

2) Christian colleges and Bible schools tend to be good and careful stewards of the resources God has given them

3) They are committed to offering need-based aid to help families with average incomes like yours.

Many students at Christian colleges are from families that do not have a lot of money. Often students are working hard to contribute toward their education—and so are the parents. Those families believe that Christian higher education is worth the cost.

I must encourage you and your parents not to give up on the possibility of a Christian education. Do some research. Compare costs. Explore scholarship, grant and loan possibilities. If you do, I believe you'll find a school that's not only affordable, but also well worth the cost.
